Allah is Ruling Then Why Human Is Sinner


One question has been coming to my mind that Allah is ruling and without Allah’s will nothing is done, then why should any body on any act of doing wrong is sinner. I need support and Quranic reference for clearification of this confusion.

Salaamun alaykum
Thank you for your question. This is a question that has concerned scholars of the Islamic world since the beginnings of the science of theology. While the Quran affirms the ultimate Will of God in verses like (76:30) and (81:29), other verses clearly state that people are accountable for their actions such as (99:7-8). So the answer to this question lies in between the Will of God and the pure free will of His servants and is neither extreme is correct. Rather, the answer to this question lies in between.
May you always be successful
